I've been having a problem with my PC lately.

It will reach 100% of CPU utilization even when I'm not running a heavy application or any application at all.

I notice if I run the task manager on the processes information that the heaviest svchost.exe increases the load until it reaches the 100%.

This is affecting my network connections, I can't release or renew my ip and if I try to configure the wireless connection it will say "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection".

After it reaches the 100% of CPU utilization and locks up it just shuts down the computer.

I appreciate your help!

Can you still connect to the internet?

Are you able to run the computer in safe mode with networking?

If you can, download and run rogue remover from here:


If anything is found, my next suggestion would be go to the hijack this forum here:


and next: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

and finally on the wireless connection, do you have another program from the manfacturer of the computer or the wireless card controlling it.

The problem sounds like malware, but may not be.

Two things I would do.

1. Scan you system for viruses etc.

2. Find out what is running under that svchost.

How to determine what services are running under a SVCHOST.EXE process
